Hi Francine ad all,
I loved your article about the German colloquialisms - had a laugh trying to sound German when reading the German!
And will not have to think "Da bin ich ueberfragt" - "I have been over asked" - Hmmm, now there you have got me!
Maybe it is a case of nagging? Or have you ever had to tell people/customers over and over again where something is (at a trade show for instance?)
Anyway, pity the person who has to say it.
